important tips that help u know a person..

I was in the shopping mall with him. We were there to meet our friends at the top floor - Food court.
I m scared of escalators. Especially taking the first step. It always scares me. I never understand where to put my feet first. It all keeps moving, I feel, I shall be sucked into the folding staircase.

Usually when I have to take the escalator with some other friends around, my friends looking at the way I panic they jus push me or lift me on to the escalator and take me upstairs.

We are just good friends and not into any relationship. We were meeting as friends. I knew he liked me

We reached near the Escalator, as usual I panicked, to take the first step.

But he stood next to me and said “ Take your first step, just put your feet ahead of the yellow line, and see-how you glide to next level, just be calm, I am there, I shall step behind the yellow line, right behind you”

He knew his limits and did not exceed it and just offered his hand and did not hold my hand on his own crossing his limits.

I unknowingly held his hand and I took my first step ahead of yellow line and he was there with me just one step behind.

Had he stepped with me ahead of the yellow line, it wud have left little space for us to stand or rather, for me to rise comfortably on the escalator and get rid of my fear.

But he was there with me, standing behind me to see I rise, to see I get rid of my fears.

I felt “ can he be the one, should I think about him, I hope he really is the one.”

I hope things go with us the way I wish them to, then may be someday we shall take the step together ahead of the yellow line.

He proved himself, now its my turn to make my place in his heart, to help us take the step ahead of the yellow line TOGETHER.

Girls - this may not be the only way to judge a person, but it’s these small situations, which make you feel, realize how he is and help you take a decision.
Guys – Try doing it ONLY with the special one and may be it shall help you to make some place of your own in her

DECIDING...

Outside my window, a new day I see,
And only I can determine
What kind of day it will be.
It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay
Or boring and cold,unhappy and gray.


My own state of mind is the determining key,
For I am only the person I let myself be.


I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,
Or be selfish and think just of myself.
I can enjoy what I do and make it fun,
Or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.


I can be patient with those who may not understand
Or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.


But I have faith in myself
And believe what i say
And I personally intend to make the most of each day

my 25th birthday......

its not everyday one turns quarter of a century, so the day is bound to be special....and luckily for me this was one of my bestest (best is not superlative enough) birthday....most memorable ones...and its thanks to my family and friends who made it special :)

celebrations had begun the previous night itself....we bought two nice tops...my mom was like u should wear new clothes on ur bday :)
i had made plans to meet chitra mohini and rehana for lunch....so she was like and u goin out too...i thought one was enough but my mom insisted we buy two...after that we went and bought ice cream (chocolate mocha fudge) to eat at stroke of 12...of course we cud not wait till then so we had it right after dinner only :)

then after dinner i was busy searching for my favorite movie scenes to put on my blog :)
phone calls started coming from one hour before my bday itself...my poor friends and cousins who cud not keep awake till 12 :)

got rehana's call at 10 45 pm....ushma's sms around 11...and mithila's call by 11 30....and chitra called at 11 55...she was like m so so sleepy i cud not wait for 5 more min...we spoke for 5 min and then i told her to sleep...then came anu's call (little did i know back then that she was planning to come visit me all the way from powai)...very soon came rujudidi's call....rushika wished me too...she speaks so sweetly now....the way she said "rhythmmasi happy birthday" was so cute

then came smses till 12 15...arshad..himali..mrunali...aditya...i fell asleep by 12 30 i think...i was really tired after staring at the computer screen for almost 2 hours....

as i opened my eyes in morning i saw a beautiful bouquet of rose and orchids on my table....so the first thing i saw were the flowers....i had not expected it to be there right at 8 am...

then i got dressed...wore my brand new top....went to ribbons and balloons to buy pasteries for my sir and assistants....wanted to call dr basrur too...he comes sometimes in clinic...pulls my leg but enlivens the place....i really wanted to share my bday with him....but i thought he might be busy with some case.....i took a chance gave him a call....and it was so sweet of him to come...we shared a very nice half an hour in clinic....

i left clinic at 12. 15 (earlier than usual) coz i had to go to dadar to meet chitra mona and rehana (thankfully we cud meet for my birthday...we cud not meet on chitra and rehana's bday..and mona's bday too its unlikely as it wud be soon after her wedding...so i am lucky we 4 cud meet on mine)...
but i had forgotten home keys...so i had to go back to hospital...collect keys from mom...and then i hurried to station....well as luck wud have it, the train came after 15 min....i was supposed to reach dadar by 1 30 and i reached at 2 30....coz the train was halting a lot in middle....other than this slight hiccup my day was superb.....

had nice lunch of lasagne,sizzler,enchilada (i know many cuisines combined)....we went to high street phoenix mall after lunch.....did time pass....sat in macdonalds till 5 40...then left...around that time the cell phone battery got discharged....so my phone got switched off....i reached home around 7 30...very very tired....and as soon as i put phone on charger calls started pouring in....

then mom dad came home and told me to get dressed for dinner.....and suddenly i heard the doorbell ring...i had no idea anu and milanjiju were coming....i was so stunned seeing them....we left for restaurant....and reaching there saw himali vinay and kedar with cake....i was totally overwhelmed and speechless.....my hands were shaky as i cut the cake....and i was making mistakes introducing my friends and family....it was so much fun....after dinner had paan....than managed to coax anu to stay overnight....

spoke with her till 2 am....called sahill to wish him....got to talk with sonumama and ba too....

also wat made this b'day really special other than the above mentioned stuff was the emails,smses and phone calls i got....got mails from raja ,palakdidi, tanvi,sujalben....phone calls from allwyn,vivekanand,macwin,dhaval,aakash,arunkaka,snehalkaki,shakil,noella,jiten, miliaunty,
apu(miliaunty's son)rushi,mohit,sudeep,varun,adarsh,shikha,,sapan,savibhabhi,ajubhai,
falguniaunty,vidhi(poor girl called me 4 times as my phone was not reachable)....shubu, called up at 2 am
(if i have forgotten a couple of names i am very very sorry)..
was not at all expecting nidhi and vibhooti to call from usa....so it was a pleasant surprise talking with them after a long long time....also got several scraps on orkut (sorry i cant mention evryone who scrapped me....but ur scraps made me feel very special...the fact that u folks took a minute out of ur day to visit my scrapbook and post ur wishes made me feel wonderful)
mails from saya,adrian and sapanjiju were unexpected too....

so on this b'day...got lots of unexpected visits...phones...emails.......
all in all one of my bestest birthdays......

stay cool....

this mail is especially true in todays day and age....where all of us are worrying about one way or the other....in our fast life we have forgotten that in the race we run our mind and body gets neglected and affected....its no wonder day by day number of people with anxiety related disorders,depressions and other psychological problems are increasing.....let us learn to stay cool....

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in
it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students,' How much do you
think this glass weighs?' '50gms!'.... '100gms!'... '125gms'. ..the
students answered.


'I really don't know unless I weigh it, 'said the professor,' but my
question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few
minutes? ''Nothing' the students said.


'Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?' the
professor asked.


'Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the students. 'You're right,
now what would happen if I held it for a day?' 'Your arm could go numb,
you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to
hospital for sure!' ventured another student & all the students laughed.
'Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?'
Asked the professor. 'No'


'Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?' The students were
puzzled.


'What should I do to remedy this'? Asked the professor again.


'Put the glass down!' said one of the students. Exactly!' said the
professor.' Life's problems are something like this. Hold it for a few
minutes in your head & they seem OK. Think of them for a long time & they
begin to ache. Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You
will not be able to do anything.


It's important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but
EVEN MORE IMPORTANT to 'put them down' at the end of every day before
you go to sleep. That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day
fresh & strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your
way!'


So, when u go to bed tonight-Remember to 'PUT THE GLASS DOWN, TODAY!

interview with GOD...

THE INTERVIEW WITH GOD

I dreamed I had an interview with God.

“So you would like to interview me?” God asked.

“If you have the time” I said.

God smiled. “My time is eternity.”
“What questions do you have in mind for me?”

“What surprises you most about humankind?”

God answered...
“That they get bored with childhood,
they rush to grow up, and then
long to be children again.”

“That they lose their health to make money...
and then lose their money to restore their health.”

“That by thinking anxiously about the future,
they forget the present,
such that they live in neither
the present nor the future.”

"That they live as if they will never die,
and die as though they had never lived.”

God’s hand took mine
and we were silent for a while.

And then I asked...
“As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons
you want your children to learn?”

“To learn they cannot make anyone
love them. All they can do
is let themselves be loved.”

“To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to others.”

“To learn to forgive
by practicing forgiveness.”

“To learn that it only takes a few seconds
to open profound wounds in those they love,
and it can take many years to heal them.”

“To learn that a rich person
is not one who has the most,
but is one who needs the least.”

“To learn that there are people
who love them dearly,
but simply have not yet learned
how to express or show their feelings.”

“To learn that two people can
look at the same thing
and see it differently.”

“To learn that it is not enough that they
forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”

"Thank you for your time," I said humbly.

"Is there anything else
you would like your children to know?"

God smiled and said,
“Just know that I am here... always.”

a beautiful story

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived:
Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One
day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all
constructed boats and left. Except for Love.

Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the
last possible moment.

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,
"Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in
my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful
vessel. "Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,"
Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"

Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not
even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an
elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where
they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own
way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,

Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?"
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is
capable of understanding how valuable Love is.......... .........
